Acne is becoming increasingly common for women in later life. Now, one in 20 women have acne after the age of 25. Acne is an inflammation of the sebaceous glands which is controlled by androgens, the male hormones that women have.
Stress and hormonal changes are the main culprits for triggering serious break-outs. It can be treated with over-the-counter preparations, antibiotic creams, oral antibiotics, the Pill, or in severe cases, Roacutane. Contrary to popular belief, chocolate and fatty foods have not been proven to make problem skin worse. Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, spicy foods, orange juice, tomatoes and dairy products can aggravate the condition.
A diet rich in zinc, vitamins C, E and A and polyunsaturated fats is beneficial, so increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meat, skinless poultry, nuts, wheatgerm and seeds. Try to avoid touching your face and always make sure your hands are meticulously clean if you do.
